Holiday Shipping [UPDATED]

[UPDATED]

Andy and Truman wouldn’t leave the party early and neither will we. We are still here and shipping like mad! The last chance to have anything arrive pre-Christmas is FRIDAY 12/19 and choose Priority Mail (according to the USPS).

ALSO, if you’re last-minute shopping we have SO many options for you:

You may have heard I have a book coming out in February… you could pre-order that (there’s a free gift card we can mail to you or the giftee).

Our fabulous PDF Gift Pack means you get 10 PDF patterns for the price of 5. The recipient can choose the patterns and they’re delivered via email. You can choose a gift card here to send to them directly with a promo code up to the last minute! Available until December 31st (gift codes may arrive when we resume business in the new year, so be patient please).

And of course we also have gift cards (my favorite thing to receive). Those are automatically sent, so this may be your best bet for last-minute gifts!

WE WILL TAKE A BREAK after Friday and cease shipping until the new year. You can still shop, but please be aware. Thank you for this incredible year of sales, we are thoroughly exhausted!!

Holiday Shipping Update

It’s crunch week and my life has blown up in a million directions. So…

The LAST DAY of shipping is Friday, December 20 so we recommend you choose Priority Mail if you need your order for Christmas. PLEASE PLACE YOUR ORDER BY THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19 to ensure Friday shipping.

We will NOT be shipping from December 21 through January 6. PDFs will still be delivered automatically and gift card service will not be disturbed. Once we return on January 6, we’ll start digging through emails and orders and resume shipping that week.

Once I get back to work, I’ll reply to your emails in the order they were received. If you don’t hear from me by January 10, please write again.

I don’t usually take time off like this, but I have some important family matters to tend to, so I appreciate your patience with me this year. I hope your holiday break is relaxing and restorative.

Thank you,

Julie
